Synopsis

How do we live out the message of Jesus in todaya€™s ever-changing culture?The church is facing its greatest challengea€”and its greatest opportunitya€”in our postmodern, post-Christian world. God is drawing thousands of spiritually curious a€œimperfect peoplea€ to become his churcha€”but how are we doing at welcoming them?No Perfect People Allowed shows you how to deconstruct the five main barriers standing between emerging generations and your church by creating the right culture. From inspiring stories of real people once far from God, to practical ideas that can be applied by any local church, this book offers a refreshing vision of the potential and power of the Body of Christ to transform lives today.a€œWe now are living in a post-Christian Americaa€”and that means we must be rethinking ministry through a missionary mindset. What makes this book both unique and extremely helpful is that it is filled with real-life stories of post-Christian people becoming followers of Jesusa€”not just statistics or data about them.a€Dan Kimball, Author, The Emerging Church". . . John's 'get it' factor with people, lost or found, is something to behold! Reading this book filled me with optimism regarding the next generation of pastors and faith communities . . . "Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community ChurchNo Perfect People Allowed is a timely and necessary word for church leaders in a post Christian culture. John Burke serves up quite a tasty meal full of the rich nutrients that will strengthen the Body of Christ.Randy Frazee, Senior Pastor, Pantego Bible Church; Author, The Connecting Church and Making Room for Life
